SRAM Force groupset 22 2x11 hydraulic rim brake for GXP
The Force 22 group is the small top group in SRAM range. Apart from a few details, this group has all the features of the top group RED. SRAM substantiated this by Force and RED Group are brought with the new 2 x 11-way system at the same time on the market! With the 11-speed stepped cartridge are now 22 courses available, which can be run thanks to the Yaw front derailleur all with no restrictions! The new, finer gradation of the cartridge allows to maintain optimal cadence precise and longer.
The Force 22 group is available with mechanical rim brakes, hydraulic rim brakes and hydraulic disc brakes. Here the hydraulic rim brake is offered!
SRAM Force 22 Double Tap brake lever - Hydraulic
These levers offer not only the crisp shift feel and light weight of the mechanical lever Force, but also the advantages of a hydraulically operated brake system. Whether hydraulic rim or disk brakes, which are Force 22 brake lever fits both systems! The venting of the system is extremely simple, the corresponding account is located at the highest point of the lever under the grip rubber. It just needs a Torx screw removed and the Avid Universal Bleedingkit are recognized.
The grip width of brake and gear levers can be adjusted separately.
SRAM Force 22 derailleur
The derailleur was only carefully optimized to keep the very good, crisp switching behavior possible. New are mainly the Aeroglide Pulleys, intended to promote a smoother running of the chain.
short cage for cassettes with up to 28 teeth
WiFLi medium cage for cassettes to 32 teeth
SRAM Force front derailleur 22
The "Yaw" -Umwerfer only introduced to all the Red 2012 Group. Thanks to a refined mechanism of not only the chain cage is moved in parallel but also about the vertical axle during switching operations - turned - or the seat tube of the frame. This rotation compensates for the skew of the chain depending switched chainring combination. This eliminates the readjustment of the derailleur as in other systems!
SRAM Force 22 Crank
The crank was significantly revised. The system of carbon crank arms, a forged aluminum spider with highly optimized chainrings and BB30 shaft made of aluminum or steel shaft GXP offer superior power transmission. The shift aids the chainrings are matched to the Yaw front derailleur to ensure fast and smooth gearshifts on the chainrings.
SRAM Bottom Brackets
High quality bearings are available in SRAM even in the standard version. With the option of hybrid ceramic bearings the durability and low rolling resistance can be improved.
SRAM PG-1170 cassette
11 finely graded gear in which switching aids are incorporated with high precision. This tray has gears can change unexpectedly quickly and cleanly. The fine grading allows to keep the cadence constant for longer and thus save power or to maintain the optimum training zone.
The 11-speed Road cassette from SRAM are only compatible with Shimano 11-speed freewheels! Appropriate wheels and conversion kits for older wheels and hubs are available from many producing!
SRAM PC-1170 chain
The new 11-speed compatible chain was also revised in details.
* A new material for inner plates to reduce wear.
* A modified process for riveting increases the strength of this connection,
so at least 2500N necessary are to remove the rivets
* The outer plates are nickel plated to increase corrosion protection
SRAM Force 22 brakes - hydraulic rim brake
This system, like the disc brake systems from Avid / SRAM that is built a reliable high braking power to offer, which is controllable at any time. Thanks to heavy-duty brake lines a more pronounced pressure point is given, which enables an exact braking, which is on par with the best mechanical brakes or above!
For power transmission is used in this brake instead of a Bowden cable DOT 5.1. This liquid is strictly standardized and offers such a reliable function, that it is used in many brake systems on the bike and especially the automotive sector. When maintenance work is only the change of the brake linings and at greater distances venting necessary. Using the Avid Bleed the brake fluid can be replaced quickly and without much effort.
Total weight: from 2140 g
Note: The total weight of the group differs depending on the configuration.
